OK, fine, not much is happening yet. We had an Eric Staal trade and a few smaller deals, but that’s about it. But you can feel the anticipation of the excitement, and that counts too. As we wait for NHL GMs to start pulling the trigger on all the blockbusters that are surely right around the corner, let’s get into game shape with a quiz.

These 20 questions will test your knowledge of the best, worst and most memorable moves of the cap era’s trade deadlines.
